Bear Bracelet


A sterling silver bear is the center focus of this bracelet. He/She is cement textured, which, lol, means after I cut/sand the bear shape, it gets hammered with a mallet against a cement block I keep just for that purpose. The rest of the links are sterling silver also: some wonky-shaped circles, some coil links, a handmade sterling "pebble" bead, an oval that's been textured on one side with a dried plant I saved, and one small circle with a copper accent.  

Bear link measures approx. 1 1/8" x 7/8" at widest points, not including the bails on each side. Bracelet length is 7 to 7 3/4 inches. Lobster clasp.
